    Program Overview
    Speaking under pressure and thinking on one's feet describe someone's ability to quickly organize thoughts and convey them meaningfully to an audience. The terms may be applied to people making formal speeches or taking part in everyday business situations. This program provides participants with some new techniques that will give them the persuasive edge when they are making a presentation, fielding difficult questions, or presenting complex information.

    The following outline highlights some of the course's key learning points. As part of your training program, we will modify content as needed to meet your business objectives. Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of the participant materials prior to the session(s).

    Course Outline
    Arming Battle Stations: Getting Started
    To begin, we will explore what speaking under pressure is. Participants will then learn an easy way to structure any presentation and seven ways to prepare even if they don't know the time, date, or topic.
    Exploring the Map: Understanding the Audience
    During this session, we will explore a three-phase needs approach. Participants will also practice creating an audience profile.
    Getting Ready for Lift Off: Controlling Your Jitters
    This session will focus on how to make the most of stage fright and use it to great advantage.
    Navigating Successfully: Key Themes, Structure, and Ideas
    In this unit, we will explain what a key theme is, how to create one, and how to distill it into a key sentence. Next, we will focus on a three-part plan (aim, concentrate, and adapt) that participants can use to structure the body of their presentations.
    Keeping Cool under Attack: Body Language
    During this segment of the program, participants will discuss ways to use body language to build credibility and win over others.
    Coming in for a Landing: On the Spot Presentations
    To demonstrate what they have learned, participants will prepare and present a five-minute speech and receive feedback from others.

    At the end of this program, participants should have the tools to handle a high-pressure speaking engagement.
